First Gobbler tags filled

Alfie’s 22 pound gobbler22 lb Eastern Gobbler Well it took a couple of mornings but my first gobbler tag is filled. A two year old Tom, 22 pounds, 8 inch beard and one inch spurs. Not my largest and not my smallest Tom over 21 years of hunting gobblers in Ontario. 


Alfie filled his first tag the day before on a 22 pounder also. 

I leave Tuesday for Montana to chase some Merriam Gobblers with my Excalibur crossbow to continue my Turkey Grand Slam with a crossbow.

When I return hopefully tag #2 will be sealed after using my Excalibur crossbow.

This ones in the freezer for an upcoming BBQ! 

Good luck to all the other hunters.
